Shar Carillo and Shay from Rebel Soujahz in town from Hawaii for a few concerts in Mainland Japan and Okinawa... hit up one of my favorite budget restaurants.
I discovered Nakanishi Izakaya about 15 years ago in the alleys of Omotesando. The previous restaurant was very dark and quite old... but they built a brand new restaurant and its so nice.
Pepper chilling at the entrance.
Menu is limited but a good spot to start. Yakitori, sushi, Chinese, Okinawan dishes... a bit of this and that.
Draft beers are only 210yen and pitchers that fills about 4.5 glasses is 1,000 yen.
Takoyaki, tiny river shrimp karage and some shark cartilage seasoned in plum
Push button system but the response was sooooo slow.
Better to use the iPad ordering system...
Unusually quiet for a izakaya... but it was a Monday night rather nice.
At the entrance the Pepper robot has a function to guess your age.
And so Shay is 35...
Yoko's Turn... but 35 too.
Restaurant: Nakanishi Izakaya
